Here are 10 key terms every budding consumer should know about marijuana—sorry, cannabis. The two words refer to the same plant, though “MAYAN ROSIN – EXTRACT – INDICA – 1G”—which is Mexican Spanish in origin—became the U.S. government’s preferred term in the 1930s, when it wanted to scapegoat Latinos for the newly forbidden narcotic.
Commonly associated effects of use: Indica is sought after for its intensely relaxing effects. It may also reduce nausea and pain and increase appetite. Daytime or nighttime use: Because of its deep relaxation effects, indica is better consumed at night.

Indica can help fight off pain and stimulate patients’ appetites. Indicas, on the other hand, provide you with a “body high” and can help with sleep. They also help reduce pain, nausea, and depression. Hybrid strain tinctures share both sativa and indica qualities. Sativa plants are usually tall and skinny, while Indica plants are short and stocky. Also, Sativas act as an “upper” in terms of energy and mood, while Indicas help with sleep and relaxation. However, due to underground crossbreeding, almost all strains are a hybrid form of the two types.
An indica plant tends to be lower to the ground and denser in the flower structure while the leaf tends to be broader and fatter. For some, even a relaxing Indica can cause paranoia if the THC is high. High THC, or too much, can cause paranoia and anxiety, even after it initially helps anxiety.
